Can a full credit card number be printed on the consumer’s copy of the receipt?

PCI DSS requirement 3.3 states “Mask PAN when displayed (the first six and last four digits are the maximum number of digits to be displayed).” Please note that PCI DSS does not override any other laws that legislate what can be printed on receipts (such as the U.S. Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) or any other applicable laws). Some states have passed legislation where there is a significant fine per instance of PAN information printed on credit card receipts. It is highly recommended to not print card numbers or personal information on receipts.
